The following books I absolutly adore. (I am a teen so I know exactly what is the best, lol)
- Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
- Harry Potter (Obvious) - J.K. Rowling
- Ranger's Apprentice Series
- Eragon Series - by Paloski
- Jane Eyre (Very Romantic Book) - by Charllote Bronte
- Twilight (For Girls Only) - Stephanie Meyers
- Da Vinci Code ( A Bit Deep)
- Artemis Fowl Series (for younger teens)
There are many more, but those are the ones I highly recommend.
You can not find audio books on Jane Eyre thought because it was published in the 1800's. I am not sure if they already have one, but just FYI.
Thanks and I hope that this was useful.

Have you read The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman? I also enjoyed the Darren Shan series, What My Mother Doesn't Know, the Inkheart series, the Pendragon series. Let me know what you think! I'm sure that you've read the Twilight Series.

Have you discovered Shannon Hale? The Goos girl is my absolute favortie, followed by Book of a Thousand days. She is an awesome writer....all of her stuff is great.
Brandon Mull's Fablehaven is a good fantasy series too.

Fairly legendary by now.
My favorite series.
Sad but amazing.
His Dark Materials Boxed Set
Everyone knows this one by now.
I'm suprised nobody mentioned it.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians Three Volume Boxed Set
There's 5 books in all, it's a fun read, shame it's not bigger.
It's much like Artemis Fowl only here mythology is dominant.

Terraem is a good book. Here is the Summary:
Fourteen year-old Menaha Ohlend has never quite felt as if she fit in. She spends most of her time alone trying to ignore the strange noises and voices she often hears inside her head. After winning a sponsored essay contest, Menaha can hardly believe her luck as the grand prize is a trip to Camp Squamish, a place she has dreamt of going her entire life. Yet, Camp Squamish will have to wait, for Menaha will soon enter a world beyond her wildest imagination. The van waiting in the parking lot will not be taking her to summer camp, but will instead be the first step on a journey to Terraem, eight light years away, where she was not only born, but where her father, someone she has not seen for years, has been living all her life. With the help of her new Terraemi friends Sananda and Soter, will soon learn to grow and understand her natural gifts, both as a young Terraemi put onto Earth for a specific purpose, and as a normal teenage girl growing up in North America.
